It’s crazy to think back to that warm September night in Grandview and think that another prep sports season has come to an end here in the Yakima Valley.
This 2014-15 season was full of state champions, incredible athletes and memorable stories.
The Davis football team, who just four years ago went winless takes a group of talented seniors and gets the school’s first playoff berth and 10-win season.
The Grandview girls wrestling team took three wrestlers to the state tournament — all with hopes of individual titles — and walks away with a team championship.
The Highland soccer team, who for the past three seasons faltered in the state quarterfinals is able to finally break through and win a state title to cap off an unbeaten campaign.
These are just three examples of the incredible stories I had the chance to follow this season, and what a busy season it was. All-in-all we shot 111 “Highlight of the Night” video packages, thousands upon thousands of still images and we will invite area athletes to the Yakima Convention Center next week for the annual Sports Awards Banquet to congratulate them on a great year.
Now time for a break. But don’t worry, fall sports and our football preview tab is just around the corner.
